These processors are not only at the heart of servers and workstations, but will also power the next generation of storage and communication systems from leading vendors around the world.
- New Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family is built to scale to meet the demands of an increasingly connected world.
- New server processors deliver up to 80 percent improved performance compared to the prior generation.
- New Intel® Integrated I/O with PCI Express 3.0 can up to triple the movement of data into and out of the processor so information can be made available faster than ever to support data-hungry applications.
- Best data center performance per watt with over 50 percent gain on SPECpower_ssj2008 plus extends platform power control with Intel® Node Manager and Intel® Data Center Manager.
The key requirements to enable IT to scale are performance, energy efficiency, I/O bandwidth and security. With the best combination of performance, built-in capabilities and cost-effectiveness, the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product families are designed to address these requirements, and become the heart of the next-generation data center powering servers, storage and communication systems.
Diane Bryant, Intel vice president and general manager of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group says "The growth in cloud computing and connected devices is transforming the way businesses benefit from IT products and services. For businesses to capitalize on these innovations, the industry must address unprecedented demand for efficient, secure and high-performing datacenter infrastructure. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is designed to address these challenges by offering unparalleled, balanced performance across compute, storage and network, while reducing operating costs."
